The Grainfather Mk2
As some of you may already know, the Grainfather Mk2 has been introduced and we've been asked "what's the difference between the Mk1 and the Mk2 and what extra do I get for my money?", so here's the low-down...
Silicone Tubes & Fixing Rings
New silicone tubes have been fitted to connect the pump with the pipework, these tubes are now moulded, so cater for the different diameter outlet on the pump and the inlet and outlet pipes. There are also fixing rings instead of hose clamps.
The thread has been changed to a much more robust coarse thread. This makes it much quicker to connect and disconnect, eliminates the chance of cross threading and provides a more substantial seal for the connection.
A shut off valve has been fitted that is opened when the connections are fitted and closed when they are removed, to eliminate the need to fit the brass cap.
The ball valve has also been moved to the outlet pipe from the counter flow wort chiller, so that it is much easier to control the flow of wort when cooling.
This conveniently fits inside the overflow pipe and the rolled top ring prevents the top pipe from being over extended.
These changes will now be included in the Grainfather Mk2 units sold online. The price of the newer units has increased due to these additions.
What if I already have a Grainfather?
For those with the Grainfather Mk1 - these upgrades will be made available, although, as yet, we have no specific delivery date (possibly August 2015) or pricing, (we will let you know when we do). But rest assured the price of the upgrades, plus the cost you've already spent on your unit, will not be more than the price of a new unit, and that's a promise.
If you'd like to know more, or would like to purchase the Grainfather - pop into the shop, give us a call or drop us a line, well be happy to help.
